Classics are called so for a reason. Though at one point we all have read Mark Twain, no one really asks what are the must reads for the Fantasy Genre? The only one that comes across is Tolkein but he is a must read in general.
So today, here is a short list of what I consider must reads for the Fantasy Genre:
- The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan
- The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett
- Once and Future King by T.H. White
- The Belgriad (both volumes) by David Eddings
- R.A. Salvatore. Seriously anything by him.
- J.R.R. Tolkein (see above.)
- Mistborne series by Brandon Sanderson
- Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
- Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
- Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce
Now the last two are my absolute favorites. If I could I would buy all of their books, but I’m broke.
Do you have some favorites in the genre that you have to recommend to everyone? Let me know in the comments below!
